RaspLogic brings drag-and-drop programming to Raspberry Pi for home automation

RaspLogic aims to provide a simple, affordable, method of implementing home automation, using the Raspberry Pi as the platform, and supplying an intuitive drag-and-drop interface for setting up logic and feedback loops:

"The software is written in C# language on .NET so it works on any operating system. However, to take one example, say you want your MP3 player to start playing when you get up in the morning, you need some reference on a common platform and Raspberry Pi is the only one common platform where people can do this without spending too much money. For $25 you can have a common platform that’s already distributed in every place around the world." - Dario Tolio, RaspLogic

At its simplest, RaspLogic could enable the automation of outside lights or a sprinkler system, but it could also be used for more complex operations, such as sending you an SMS or email alert when someone rings your doorbell, and allowing for a virtual conversation with your visitor from wherever you are, or setting up irrigation rules that are weather-dependent (i.e. if there's rain in the forecast, don't water today).
